Market Driver

Increasing Reliance on Drones by Oil & Gas Companies amid COVID-19 to Propel Growth

Even as the coronavirus outbreak ravages the global economy, the Drone Surveillance Market for Energy & Power growth is likely to gain momentum amid the pandemic as oil & companies show increasing dependence on UAVs for managing their rigs in the open seas. In the US, for example, the North Carolina-based drone service specialist SkyScopes is providing its state-of-the-art, LiDAR-powered UAVs to oil & gas companies in the region for the inspection of pipelines and other critical infrastructures. In Europe, Italy-domiciled energy company Snam has been testing ‘beyond the visual line of sight’ (BVLOS) unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to test its vast network of pipelines. The main factor pushing the adoption of drones in the hydrocarbon industry is the sudden drop in on-site workforce due to the social distancing measures imposed to contain the coronavirus. More importantly, drones are a much safer option to conduct surveillance and inspection activities as they eliminate the need to put workers’ lives in danger and can in fact boost efficiency.
